romney both very quick to talk about these job numbers. president obama saying, you know, this -- we still have got a way to go, but it proves we are going in the right direction and we can't go back to the policies of the past. >> obama: today's news certainly is not an excuse to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has become too far to turn back now. >> bill: indeed. the president in a campaign event this california talked moyer about these numbers. >> obama: the unemployment rate has fallen down to 7.8% the lowest since i took office. [ cheers ] >> bill: the president can take credit for 4.3 million jobs created in this country since february 2010, 4.1 million jobs were lost in the last year of the bush presidency so president obama as in fact made up for all of the jobs lost under george w. bush -- made up for all of the jobs losted under president bush and adds jobs on top of that. there is no doubt about it that the president can take credit for creating jobs where mitt romney never did. the headline in

inside "the war room," i'm jennifer grandholm. both president obama and governor romney are pulling out all of the stops to win colorado's nine electoral votes. the latest poll from american research group has romney leading 50% to 46%. last month the same survey had obama leading. so here is david sirota who is author of "back to our future," and cohost of a radio show. and he really knows what people are saying and things. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: president obama was doing great until the debate in denver. what did you folks do to our president? >> i think this race was always fluid out here in colorado. there is a huge number of latino voters in this state, and mitt romney is doing terribly among latino voters. i think this will be definitely a turnout election. it is going to be a 2008 turnout or '2010 turnout, and what does that actually look like, and it's really anybody's guess right now. and i would say this, one thing that i think democrats can be -- can feel good about is that senator michael bennett was

the facility. a constant reminder that lives will be ruined if jobs go to china. both president obama and governor romney has spoken about the threat that china poses to the u.s. manufacturing base. president obama has pushed back hard to end loopholes to that give breaks to companies that move jobs offshore but mitt romney is running for president on his bain capital business experience, and bain has helped companies maximize profits by outsourcing jobs to low-wage countries like china, which brings us back to the factory. can you guess who controls it? bain capital. of course bain capital no longer man ages bain today. but would it surprise you to learn he owns stock in the company. he had at least enough stock in the company that he was able to transfer more than $200,000 worth of shares so a foundation that he controls. for more on the human cost i'm joined by freeport illinois mayor. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room." >> thank you for the opportunity. >> let's just start with us how important are these jobs to the town of freeport? >> we

four major areas where romney and the president's plan are nearly identical. one is afghanistan. both plan to transfer power to local security forces by the end of 2014. syria, romney wants to give aid to neighboring states. number 3 is iran where both romney and the president say the country should not have access to nuclear weapons. plus yesterday romney promised to restore aircraft carrier groups to the region but we already have one in the gulf. and romney attacked the president for not signing a single agreement in the last four years, but he is wrong. mr. obama has signed agreements with south korea, and panama. we'll be right back. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were so helpful when they didn't even have much themselves. seeing people and their hardships made me want to make a difference in people's lives to give them hope. receiving a masters degree would open the doors for me to get into a management position where i would be able to do more for people. ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on c

about sanctions in iran -- i would like to move to iran. >> ryan: absolutely. >> both president obama and governor romney have said they will prevent iran from getting a nuke even if they means military action. last week former defense secretary said a strike on iran's facilities would not work and quote, could prove catastrophic haunting us for generations. can the two of you be absolutely clear and specific to the american people how effective would a military strike be? congressman ryan? >> ryan: we cannot allow iran to gain a nuclear weapon's capability. let's take a look at where we have come from. when barack obama was elected they had enough nuclear material to make one bomb and now they have enough for five. they are four years close towards a nuclear weapon's capability. we had four different sanctions against iran one here. mitt romney proposed these ang shuns in 2007. the administration was blocking us every step of the way, only because we had strong bipartisan support for these tough sanctions were we able to overrule. imagine what would have hand if

administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions could help to bring iran to the negotiating table? i think the sanctions were already pretty tough. >> i think they are. i think it's a punishment strategy more than a persuasion strategy. you know at some point they agree to a compromise position but basically we're hurting them a lot already. if their oil exports are down by half, the currency has declined by half anyway but the regime may not care, and that's the real dilemma. >> jennifer: sure. i really appreciate you coming inside "the war room" to explain the unrest. all right. political junksies coming up we'll tell you why the president will be dancing a jig if the only headache he has to deal with on january 1st is a hang over headach

(vo) jennifer granholm ... >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. build a ground-breaking car. good. now build a time machine. go here, find someone who can build a futuristic dash board display. bring future guy back. watch him build a tft display like nothing you've ever seen. get him to explain exactly what that is. the thin film transistor display...

. >> good morning, everyone. mitt romney is spending the day in ohio. he is hitting the wroed chris christie, first in mount vernon and then later in delaware ohio, and his son josh joins him for a rally in sidney. both he and the president campaigned in ohio yesterday. according to the latest cnn poll, obama does have the lead in the state. he is up 51 to 47% which is a bit of a smaller lead than he had going into the debates. cnn is giving gender gap the credit for that lead. we are seeing a lot of controversy over voter laws this season. and in ohio it's early voting that is causing a stir. last year the last three days of early voting were canceled for everyone except the military. the obama administration sued and it was agreed everyone must be allowed to vote the last three days before the election. now they are taking it to the supreme court, republicans once again pushing this through, coming from ohio secretary of state, john houston. more bill coming up after the break. stay with us. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in whic

democrats pretty shaken up myself included. showed romney up by a full four points. the numbers both campaigns are really going to be looking at are the ones coming out of the swing states. both candidates are back on the trail, and ohio, the picture there has changed as well. the president leads in ohio by just barely by four points. he was up to eight points last week. et too ohio? and they are tied in nevada at 47, in colorado romney has a four-point lead, in pennsylvania where the president had a 12 point lead three weeks ago, he now released by just three points. so how concerned should we be? well, before we all have a collective panic attack let's turn to the great nate silver. the "new york times" polling guru who last time around correctly predicting 49 out of 50 states. he says the president still has at 71.4% chance of winning. the president's reelection still looks like a very good chance. here to talk about how to get our mojo back is the house minority leader, nancy pelosi. thank you so much for coming back. how bad is it? >> we don't agonize we org
